Nigerian Cleric Develops Mobile Educational App, Nkuzi
A BELGIUM-based Nigerian Pastor, Mike Chuks Nwanegbo, who is also the National Coordinator of The Redeemed Christian Church of God Belgium Mission, has developed a mobile application known as Nkuzi Mobile App.
According to Pastor Nwanegbo, who is also a member of the board of The International School of Flander, Waterloo, Brussels, one of the leading international schools in Belgium, “Nkuzi Mobile App is Africa’s number one students educational resource mobile app on android platform, aimed at helping students to pass their examinations with ease.”
Explaining the rationale behind the application, the cleric said: “the idea is to make available past questions of GCE, JAMB, NECO and others to students through the mobile phone. Instead of students playing games on their mobile phones, they can now download Nkuzi mobile app for free. Once downloaded, the student can choose a subject and the app will present questions and answers by simply clicking a button “Get answer”.
Speaking with The Guardian on his invention, the National Coordinator said he discovered that lots of students spend their time playing games on their mobile phones instead of paying attention to their studies.
“So, I was moved to take their studies to them on their mobile world and this is a gift to the students in the land of my nativity”, he said.
He stated that Nkuzi website could offer students other free services such as class work support, students forum, chat room and student counselling forum.
He added: “Nkuzi has developed another app for ladies called ‘Women’s World’. This app helps a woman to calculate her menstrual circle, when to expect her period, and possibly get pregnant and also her safe period.”
